Dilli Haat - Shoppers' Paradise!

There is no debating the fact that Shopping is fun in any part of the world. However, most shoppers would agree that shopping in Delhi is incomplete without a trip to Dilli Haat - rightly known as a "Shoppers' Paradise".

Situated in the heart of South Delhi, on what was earlier considered as wasteland, Dilli Haat (Hastshilpi) is a perfect blend of culture, handicrafts and cuisines from different parts of India. All this coupled with green, open surroundings make a perfect ambience for shopping to your heart's content.

Visitors are allowed entry on purchasing an Entry Ticket  available  in two categories - Adult and Child. On stepping inside, you feel like you have entered a haat (mela) with hut like structures made of brick.

Each hut gives you a feel of a state of India. There is so much available that it is recommended to take plenty of time off, before you decide to visit Dilli Haat! Price bargaining doesn't really work here but when has that stopped us from trying!
